The Wedding is the first self-titled release from American punk rock band, The Wedding. It was released February 15, 2005 on Rambler Records,[5] and is the only album put out by the band to have four members. Two singles have been released from this album, "Move this City" and "Song for the Broken". No music videos have been released for this cd, single or otherwise. The album received mostly positive reviews and the band soon released a follow up EP, Rumble in the South, with bonus songs and later a second album, Polarity. This album includes guest vocals from Matt Thiessen of Relient K in the song "But A Breath".

Sound[edit]

The Wedding's debut release is lighter than other albums; this is because of the band only having four members at the time of this release. The music relies on Kevin Kiehn's high vocals and piano and pushes the bass into the background. The band's then current drummer, Clint Robinson, plays lightly with more simple beats rather than "Polarity" which features fast drumming.
